I have had a similar problem twice since I bought my '02 TJ last October. I would shut the engine of with the key, run into the store, come back out and start it, the airbag light would stay on, the radio would quit working along with the turn signals and the wipers, maybe more but that is all that I checked. If I put the key into the air bag "on/off" and turn it off then on everything comes back to life and all is good again. I guess these things must have a road gremlin or two in them. ScoobyMy airbag light came on in my 97 sahara. There is no grinding or clicking noise behind the steering wheel that would indicate a bad clock spring. Is there a common ground that comes loose or i should check that could be causing this?
